The Denver Broncos will sign free agent guard Ronald Leary. The former Cowboys interior lineman received a hefty payday. ESPN NFL reporter Adam Schefter was the first to report the news.
Cowboys G Ron Leary plans to sign with the Denver Broncos assuming no last-minute negotiating snags, per sources.

Leary will receive a four-year deal worth $35 million. $20 million of that total will be guaranteed. The Dallas Cowboys had no chance of keeping him considering they already have two pro bowl guards in La’el Collins and Zack Martin. Leary, an undrafted free agent from Memphis back in 2012, has spent his entire career with the Cowboys.
Denver has needed offensive line help for quite some time. The fit is interesting due to the fact that Leary also has familiarity with Tony Romo who the Broncos are expected to pursue.
